CONGRATULATIONS MOFFAT, MY MIND IS SUFFICIENTLY BLOWN! BEST FINALE EVER, FUCK YES!

However, I'm seriously depressed right now that the series is over already...thirteen episodes is NOT NEARLY ENOUGH!
sulwen: (doctor)
Just got caught up on the most recent two episodes of Doctor Who, and OH MY GOD. I think my heart stopped for those last few minutes. I definitely teared up. Absolutely EPIC. Nothing at all against previous seasons, but this is pretty much inarguably the best. Jesus Christ.

IS IT SATURDAY YET???
sulwen: (corset)
I don't have girlcrushes often. To be honest, the Js take up most of my perving time and energy - which is a considerable accomplishment on their part, pretty boys that they are!

However, occasionally I get whacked in the head with attraction for someone of the female variety, and good GOD does it hit me hard.

Oh Karen Gillan, the things I would do to you, lovely girl...



More pictures and adoration under the cut )

Gorgeous, no? Interestingly, I think I may be developing a type. The only other girl I can remember falling this hard for is Summer Glau, who has kind of a similar look going on (and oh, fuck ME, this picture is amazing):



Which segues nicely into one of my (and fandom's, I think!) favorite Firefly quotes - I'll be in my bunk!

New Who!

Liked it, I think! Which is fabulous! I'll take like! *desperately wants to be able to keep being a fan post-Ten*

ETA: Actually, upon a second watch, I was extremely happy with the episode. The writing is just so tight! The story was beautifully layered, beautifully complex...really important bits of information were said just once, and you had to be paying very close attention to catch it all and put it together. Perhaps that's why I liked it better this time - I got everything it was trying to do. If the writing stays at this level, I predict absolutely ADORING this season!
sulwen: (omfg)
JESUS CHRIST, DOCTOR WHO! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SPRINGING FUCKING DISTORTED FACES ON ME FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!

Freaking out in the corner now...*shudder*

ETA: Also, Steven Moffat owns my soul with his amazing, amazing writing. I absolutely loved every single one of his Doctor Who episodes, and then I found out that he wrote Coupling, which I also loved! So yeah, I'm one hundred percent behind him taking over Doctor Who from Davies!

ETA the second: OMG MERLIN'S IN THIS EPISODE! *dances the crossover dance*

ETA the third: Damn, Colin Morgan, you do look good in black! You should tell the Merlin costume people to put you in black more often. And Bradley too, for that matter. YUM.

ETA THE FOURTH AND LAST, I PROMISE: HOW DID I NOT KNOW THAT THAT WAS DAVID TENNANT IN THE FOURTH HARRY POTTER MOVIE? I'VE SEEN THAT MOVIE A DOZEN TIMES - YOU'D THINK I WOULD HAVE RECOGNIZED HIM WHEN I STARTED WATCHING DOCTOR WHO! *apparently sucks at remembering faces*
sulwen: (kiss)
I'm really starting to worry about the incest kink. 17 minutes into this episode and I'm shipping already.

I think it's just my thing for forbidden love. Apparently, gay isn't forbidden enough anymore.

*crazy brain is crazy*

ETA a bit of a spoiler for the end of the episode )

WHAT?

I am a fangirl (and person, but we're not talking real life in this post) who is, for the most part, resistant to change.

This works quite well for me most of the time. I tend to like the main characters in the fandoms I'm in, and they're usually protected from change, particularly when it comes to TV shows, movie trilogies, and book series, as those things have to be able to continue.

SPN is a great example - Sam and Dean, despite everything they go through, generally end up much the same at the end of the episode as they were at the beginning. When this doesn't happen, it is immediately fixed in the next episode. S4 and a few episodes at the beginning of S5 played with that a bit, but at the end of the day, we still have Sam and Dean, saving people, hunting things. Same as it ever was.

HOWEVER.

Doctor Who and Torchwood are upsetting me greatly in this respect. Or perhaps that's not the right word, upsetting. More, they're pushing me out of my comfort zone, and that makes me nervous.

Torchwood presented itself one way in S1, pretty much stayed exactly the same in S2 (following traditional serial mentality), and then TRANSFORMED ENTIRELY in S3, even down to the show format. That threw me. I've never seen anything on TV quite like it. And I can't even say if it's a good change or not, not until I see S4. Right now, I feel very much in limbo, as I bet most of the fandom does.

When it comes to Doctor Who, it's a different story, but no less unsettling. I started watching Nine, and I fell in love with him, particularly toward the end of that season. Then, suddenly, there's Ten, and I'm thrown for a loop. I knew this was coming, knew that was part of the character, but I'd JUST had enough time to get into the character I'd been presented with. Now I had to do that all over again?

I was extremely wary of the new version at first. This was unfamiliar and strange and I didn't like it at all. Of course, within the space of a few episodes, I was more in love with Ten than I'd ever been with Nine, more than I'd ever THOUGHT I could be in love with this character or this show. And so he sticks around, and there's a lot of sameness for a few seasons, which I absolutely love.

But now it's about to change again, and again I feel extremely unsettled. I love the way things are now, and I feel extremely resistant to the new choice. It's nothing in particular against that actor - I haven't seen a thing from him yet, so I can't judge - but still. Not at all what I would have preferred. And there's a chance that I'll love the change, but there's also a chance that I'll hate it, and I DON'T LIKE NOT KNOWING.

In conclusion, CHANGE IS WEIRD. ALSO, I CARE WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT FICTIONAL CHARACTERS.

"Is it still necrophilia if I'm conscious?"

*hearts show and its craziness*

Also, the end of Doctor Who S2 made me cry. Actually cry. That show has a great feel for epic moments, I'll give it that.
